Thoughts of Spring



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

'Spring'. The word itself sounds refreshing and exciting. In our yard and garden spring flowers are pushing through the ground. Soon color will return and, I hope, so will warm weather and sunshine.

I've always thought of forsythia as a sure sign that Spring has arrived. I took this picture at Serenity Falls toward the end of March last year. I haven't seen any forsythia yet this year, but it is something to look forward to!

I am glad your spring is springing. Beautiful flower. i don't think I hae ever seen forsythia before. I posted the answer and you were right about the nighshirt but there is more than that.

Well, it is surely much prettier when just one bloom is taken close up. Sort of like a whole different plant. We have one in our yard, but I didn't know what this was till I read what you said!

It was almost 80 here today.
It seemed more like Summer than Spring.

I love forsythia and wish the yellow flowers lasted longer than they do. It is a sure sign of spring and one I look forward to too.

I love this wild plant and its beautiful blossoms. If only they lasted just a little longer!
